I'm of the belief this recent upwards swing, will be followed by a downwards swing, where they lose 3 of 4, that sort of thing.
I think the Jets will finish 26th to 24th in the league and pick in the 6th to 8th spot, assuming the Capitals continue to play better and the Flames improve when they get Kipper back. At that spot, I think Monahan or Lindholm might be the pick.
1. NY Isles - Jones
2. Blue Jackets - Barkov
3. Sabres - MacKinnon
4. Panthers - Drouin
5. Avs - Nichushkin (or Lindholm or Monahan)
6. Jets - Monahan or Lindholm - whoever isn't picked, and likely Monahan if both are available.
Either one of those two would be fine. Though, a top 4 pick would be really special.
If they do get their act together and finish in a playoff spot, then taking a dman or physical forward in the 20+ range works for me too.
I've given up trying to figure out where this team will end up. For awhile I thought for sure we would get a top 5 pick. Now it looks like this team could reach the playoffs, especially if Chevy goes into a bit of a buying mode. If we end up in that 7-10 range we have the last 3 years, hopefully something special drops to us. And of course there is always the lottery...someone has to win it.
